Digital Impressions vs Conventional Impressions

At Dentistry at Clarkson, we believe in providing our patients with the most advanced and efficient dental care. One aspect of dental care that we have improved the most recently is our impression taking process. Previously, traditional impressions were the go-to method in capturing an accurate representation of teeth structure. However, with technological advancements, digital impressions have become increasingly popular and have proven to be better in many ways.

Firstly, Digital Impressions, also known as Intraoral scanning, is performed using a small, handheld wand that captures a digital image of your teeth. This image is then sent to the laboratory, where it is used to create highly accurate dental restorations that can perfectly match the natural look and feel of your teeth.

Secondly, digital impressions are a much quicker and comfortable process. Unlike the traditional impression used for molds, which can be messy and uncomfortable, digital impressions can be completed quickly and usually without any discomfort to the patient.

Moreover, Digital Impressions lead to more precise restoration because the digital images allow the dentist to work with a much greater degree of precision. This precision ensures that the final restoration is more accurate, durable and provides longer-lasting results.

In conclusion, Digital Impressions have many advantages compared to conventional impressions. They are more comfortable, quicker, more precise, and provide longer-lasting results that perfectly match the appearance and function of your natural teeth. As always, we strive to provide our patients with the best dental care possible and encourage you to contact us @ 905-823-7855 or for any questions you may have about all our dental services.
